If you're a voter in Katy, Texas, you'll need to make sure you have the right form of identification in order to cast your ballot. There are seven acceptable forms of photo identification that are current or, for voters between 18 and 69 years old, that expired no more than four years ago. These include a driver's license, personal identification card, election identification certificate, concealed handgun license, military identification card, citizenship certificate, and passport. If you don't have one of these forms of ID or can't reasonably obtain one, you can fill out a Declaration of Reasonable Impediment (RID) (PDF) at the polls and present an alternative form of identification such as a utility bill, bank statement, government check, or voter registration certificate.
Voters with disabilities can apply to the county voter registry for a permanent exemption from the requirement to present acceptable photo ID or to follow the county's reasonable impediment declaration procedure.
